They were founded and run by a group of travellers who had lots of fun backpacking around the world.

Dougies Backpackers Resort is a great Port Douglas location to explore all of the Port Douglas attractions the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest and Atherton Tablelands.

They have been building Dougies Backpackers Resort for over 12 years and have a relaxed atmosphere, without all of the formal procedures that some hostels have.

Enjoy the happy, relaxed atmosphere,  enjoy the warm tropical sunshine, read a book in a hammock or take a dip in the pool.

Located on the left-hand side on the way into town so lovely and easy to find.

Dougies Backpackers Resort is set on a couple of acres, with lush tropical gardens and close enough to wander to beautiful 4 Mile Beach or stroll down to the Port Douglas Marina to start your tour of the Great Barrier Reef 

The Crew at Dougie’s aim to provide a memorable highlight of your visit to Australia, whether you stay for just a few days or get a job in town and stay for months.
